Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Buy For 2019

Sometimes I discuss stocks which sit out of my comfort zone, simply because they have a few characteristics which could be of interest to any kind of investor but don’t necessarily fit my portfolio. For example a blue chip stock which has features of positive capital gains combined with interesting dividend. In this case I am talking about Accenture (NYSE:ACN).

    Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) dropped 4.21% last week and shares are down 13.5% for the year to date.

    Investors were expecting good news from Target (NYSE:TGT) in its second-quarter earnings report. Peers like Walmart (NYSE:WMT) had recently announced accelerating sales growth thanks to strengthening economic trends and favorable weather patterns, after all. And Target’s management team said in late May that its recent customer traffic trend — the best rate the retailer had managed in a decade — had strengthened further into the first few weeks of the new quarter.

  • [By Matthew Frankel, CFP]

    There are two main reasons for this. For one, the company invests in properties occupied by tenants that have little to worry about from recessions, or from the e-commerce headwinds that are wreaking havoc in many areas of retail. Just to name a couple of examples from Realty Income’s top tenants, Walgreens (NASDAQ: WBA) sells things people need in good times and bad. Walmart (NYSE: WMT) offers bargains that online retailers have a tough time matching, and its low prices actually tend to help during recessions.

  • [By Anders Bylund, Leo Sun, and Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    The e-commerce platform acts a middleman, taking a small percentage of the value of each sale that occurs on its marketplace. That operating model differs from that of integrated giants like Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT), which own massive warehouses and shell out big money to build extensive fulfillment infrastructures.

Top Financial Stocks For 2018

Snapchat is replacing its chief financial officer with a 20-year veteran of Amazon and giving him more than $20 million to help fix the company.

Wall Street liked the idea. Shares of Snap Inc (SNAP)., the parent company of Snapchat, rose nearly 2% on Tuesday.

Snap’s new CFO will be Tim Stone, who has worked for Amazon (AMZN) since March 1998. He was most recently vice president of finance, but he also briefly ran the company’s physical stores, including the integration of Whole Foods after Amazon bought it last year.

Wall Street has been wondering whether Evan Spiegel, Snap’s co-founder and CEO, needs a veteran tech executive to get the company back on track and be the so-called adult supervision sort of like Sheryl Sandberg at Facebook or Eric Schmidt when Google (GOOGL) went public.

Snap’s latest earnings report showed continued losses and sluggish user growth. The company’s recent redesign ticked off some of its high-profile celebrity users. And Snap is falling further behind Instagram, owned by Facebook (FB), which keeps copying Snapchat features and gaining more users.
